Vegan Italian Cauliflower Rice

Okay, I was a little skeptical about this recipe but it is truly amazing! It just TASTES healthy. I added extra spices like basil and a little extra Italian seasoning and it really helped with the flavour. It’s healthy and easy to make (I believe it took me about 30 minutes total including the time it took to chop the veggies). Definitely worth a try, and so convenient after a long day at work!
